      GM posts profit, workers to get big checks

      Good news for thousands of Northwest Ohio General Motors workers.

      GM made $898 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, up from $468 million in 2011.

      That means hourly workers could receive checks of more than $6,500.

      The automaker earned $4.9 billion in 2012, compared to $7.6 billion in 2011.

      Still, after many years of losses, it's General Motors third consecutive annual profit.
